Cooking for Picasso Book Review

Cooking for Picasso by Camille Aubray

I got this book on a CD to listen to my drive to work from a northside suburb of Indianapolis all the way downtown Indianapolis. The drive can take thirty-five minutes if conditions are right, but if there's an accident on any one of the four highways I take to work then the drive usually takes well over an hour. It's a bit on the annoying side of things in life. Thankfully, I only have to make the drive three days a week, and have gotten in the habit of listening to books on CD to make me feel like I'm being productive while I drive. 

This book was adorable! Jumping back and forth between a cook in the French Riviera in the late 30's to her make-up artist granddaughter living in present day New York City, this book is basically the story of the grandmother who cooked for an eccentric artist living in a villa the family rents. The novel does a good job at describing not only the history and painting of Picasso, but the food and scenery of the French seaside village. The characters were darling, and believable. It was a fast, wonderfully charming light-hearted read.
